Data makes the world go round. It’s politics, economy, culture and it’s business – the foundation of digital trust. At the edge of the big data era, citizens and consumers are starting to worry about the lack of control over their data and they’ve begun to act, legislation is adapting and alternative business models and technologies are emerging. Data ethics is not only a rising demand and formal requirement, it is also becoming a key competitive parameter.
Companies, organisations and authorities which view data ethics as a social responsibility and assess and manage the potentials and risks of data on an equal basis are tomorrow’s winners.
